Unhappy hello with my first thread : i got a MRTG problem on Fedora14

after i install mrtg-2.16.4-3.fc14.i686.rpm
then i create mrtg.cfg with vi command like this

#cfmaker --global 'WorkDir:/var/www/html/mrtg' --global
'options[_] :bits,growright' --output
/home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg public@xx.xx.xx.xx

then i run
>mrtg /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg
>ERROR : mrtg will most ~~~~~~ Try the following command to start
env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg

then i run
>env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg
>ERROR: Line 2 ('options[_] :bits,growright' --output)in CFG file dose not make sense

im just start learning Linux 2 weeks ago
pls advice me
sry for my bad english
no problem bad English is no big deal .
but PLEASE DO NOT use "text speek "
"pls" is NOT the word "please"
"sry" is NOT the word "sorry"

but first the bad news
fedora 14 is past it's END OF LIFE
there is and there NEVER will be any more support for 14
no new programs
no bug fixes
no SECURITY fixes
-- no nothing , it is dead .--

The current is fedora 16
if you are going to use fedora then you NEED to stay current and install the new version EVERY 6 months
-- yes reinstall the OS every 6 months. Preupgrade might work but DO NOT COUNT ON IT !!! ---

as to editing that file
is using "vi" a MUST DO / MUST USE VI ?
if not then " nano" is a better choice until you have memorized the vi key commands

fedora has nano installed by default
also you might want ( for terminal use ) install " mc " ( midnight commander)
it is a terminal file manager and editor
su -
yum install mc

from the mrtg documentation page

but fedora should have it in the repos
14 is not supported so the older 2.16 will NEVER be updated to the current 2.17
--- or ---
did you do the first part and build it from source
if you fallowed the instructions on the first half of the above page - you most likely relay messed up your system .
or did you use "yum" to make sure that
gcc,gd,libpng,zlib, were installed ( AND there -devel rpms )
